Bug Spotting


On My Buggy Way

The mysterious wanderer was constantly moving as he traversed the thick growth of the jungle, alert for the signs that would point him to his goal. He preferred to make his way on the ground at first. It was cooler there, and he made quick progress, but sometimes he ran across other beetles, ants or spiders, and he knew better than to mingle, so when his path intersected with another, he made his way up, high into the canopy where the sun was able to penetrate the thick growth. He made slower progress in the heat, but the canopy presented him with an exciting network of intersecting paths from which to choose. He was able to explore a greater variety of growth, and he made new discoveries along the way. He sampled a little bit of a leaf here, another taste from another plant, further along. And best of all, no one bothered him on his circuitous route through the growth, for he preferred to stay anonymous. When he came across the thorn encrusted dried flower husk, he circled up and down and around it, seeking for a way in. Surely there would be a succulent treat inside!

But, someone intruded upon his space, pressing ever closer, pushing weeds aside, trying to get a better look at him, trying to examine him from every angle and identify him and his purpose. What this beetle, our mysterious wanderer discovered is that the Weed Gal was on a mission of her own and they both discovered each other today. Hello Mystery Wanderer! It’s Me!

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
